Our Practice

NMA is a team of five talented fully qualified architects who are passionately dedicated to delivering unparalleled client service and a high degree of professionalism combined with creativity and a down-to-earth approach. The practice is led by principals and chartered architects Douglas Nicholson and Paul McShane and Associate Nicola Falconer-Bell, each of whom have a wide range of experience in the design and management of construction projects large and small.

With a shared commitment to excellence, we engage in a collaborative process that places the client’s vision at the heart of every project. We pride ourselves on attentive listening and on developing an understanding our client’s needs, aspirations and preferences ensuring that each design is a unique reflection of our clients’ requirements.

Our service is fully insured and regulated by our professional bodies, the Architects Registration Board, The Royal Institute of British Architects and the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland.

We believe that the key to our success and our expanding workload is our blend of approachability, creativity and integrity.
